3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2015 16oz can poured into a shaker. Pleasant notes of grapefruit, orange, and their respective peels, toasted bread, and some caramel hit the nose. It pours an oily, light copper / orange color topped with a puffy off-white head. There?s a good amount of lace and the fluffy head recedes slowly, eventually reducing to a medium thick ring with a surface haze. The taste is a high/medium-high bitter with a medium sweet backbone. It has an oily texture with an average amount of somewhat soft, but fizzy head. The finish is grapefruit and caramel with a spice quality to it. The spice and grapefruit linger for a while with a citrus note appearing too.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2014 1 pint can.Pours a crystal clear, light copper with a bubbly, one finger, white head.Aroma is slight with notes of bread, citrus, and slightly floral. Taste is slightly bitter and floral with notes of pine, resin, citrus, a mildly dry, bitter aftertaste. Low to medium body. Medium carbonation. Pretty clean in the mouth and very refreshing. Not a bad brew. Slightly better on draft I believe. Would get again.

A nice APA, with a good, citric hops character and depth of flavor. It falls short of the best APAs, but would certainly do just fine most of the time.

aroma is very light pine, mostly dull wet grains. appearance is tranlucent deepened amber, filmy head, good lacing. flavor is orange zest, fresh lemon leaves which unfortunately come across as artificial at times. fresh pale malt not nearly as grainy here as in nose, great balance but zero pine or other sharp hop character

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Honey-colored with soft haze and a thin head of sandy tan foam. Dried orange peel, burnt sugar, pine needles and wet grass in the nose -- a very green, chlorophyll-filled aroma. Sugar cookies add balance in the background. The flavor replicates the fragrance, though the teeter-totter tilts a little more toward the side of grassy bitterness, with subtle honey rolls mixed in. Thick medium body; mild CO2. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 In the category of Daisy Cutter with a touch less edge and easier drinking. Pours a nice golden orange with a thin white head that fades fast and leave a trace of lace. Nice citrus and pine hop profile without being over bearing. A good brew to share with no craft fans as a gateway. A bit over priced for what it is.

Can from rayl101 - pours deep gold with a thin but sustained head. Nose is more like a lager. The taste is citrus at first but leans more towards a dry pine. Dry finish.

16 oz. can served in a Kuhnhenn snifter. Big thanks to my mom for picking me up a 4-pack on her recent trip through Indy.
A: Pours a clear orange color with a thin, wispy white head forming on the pour. it recedes to a thin ring that leaves some minor splotches of lace down the glass.
S: Light grass on the nose with some mild citrus. Some fruity berry, akin to strawberries as you pass by them in the grocery store. Very faint, but you can pick them out. Light cracker malts with a touch of stale bread.
T: Lots of bready malts with the same light strawberry note coming through. A little sweet, but slightly watered down with a touch of grassy.
M: Light bodied with a medium carbonation level. A little bland on the finish.
O: This was alright. Decent enough to drink and it’d make a fine camping beer, but it’s pretty bland and forgettable overall.
Serving type: can

Tasting at Nya Tröls. It is what it’s supposed to be, a standard west-coast pale ale. Nothing super special about it, nothing wrong with it either.
